About the Kingsbridge Library


Set against the backdrop of a vibrant multiethnic community in the Northwest Bronx, the Kingsbridge Branch of The New York Public Library has been an integral part of its neighborhood since 1905. Originally located on Kingsbridge Avenue, the branch relocated to 280 West 231st Street from January 23, 1959 to June 11, 2011. Today the library is located at 291 West 231st Street and features two floors with large collections for adults, young adults, and children. There is also a beautiful outdoor garden, a spacious meeting space, a children's story-hour room, and numerous computers and laptops for patrons.
